The Collaborative Australian Postgraduate Sea Training Alliance Network (CAPSTAN) is in full swing gearing up for our second voyage!  In April 2019, 20 postgraduate students and 10 trainers from universities across Australia will set sail on RV Investigator from Hobart headed to Fremantle. They will spend 11 days together in the close quarters as they cross the Great Australian Bight. Their goal? Learn as much about the interdisciplinary aspects of marine science and the logistical aspects of science at sea as possible.  CAPSTAN is transforming marine science education in Australia and serving as a platform for generational, institutional, and industrial knowledge transfer through hands-on training experience aboard the RV Investigator.
